New 'Traffic Light System' Set Up By Mexican Church to Warn of Killings Occurring Outside

At traffic light warning system, with the red light indicating shootings going on outside, was set up by a Mexican church following widespread violence in the area.

During mass, a green light is activated from the top of a side door of the church, which means there is no presence of danger on the streets outside, the paper added.

When the red light is lit, it means that someone is being shot outside, whereas the amber light indicates caution.

As another security measure, the church has constructed a concrete wall in front of its main facade.

Posters and notices of missing or kidnapped people are hung inside the church, the paper added.
